Parthiv Patel, who started his career in test matches when he was just 18, has announced his retirement from Indian cricket on Wednesday.
Parthiv played 25 test matches, 38 one days, and 2 T20 matches for team India. He announced his retirement through social media.
“I still believe in Test matches, your best keeper should play like Wriddhiman Saha for India. Yes, the skills change as per formats but I believe now, you have to be equally good keeper and batsman to play for India,” Parthiv said.
Parthiv had an amazing career scoring 11,000 first class runs in 194 matches. His effortless captaincy led Gujarat to the maiden Ranji Trophy in 2016-17.In addition, Patel was also a part of six different teams in the Indian Premier League where he managed 13 fifties over 139 games.
